Half Tonner

Since 2004 The Half Ton Class Europe is guiding the revival of the former IOR half tonners. Half tonners are 9m long sailing vessels, build to the IOR rating rules from 1967 to 1992. A boat is considered as a 'half tonner' if it fulfills the following requirements:
• if it has been designed & build as a prototype one-off in the period between January 1st 1967 and December 31st 1994, and
• if it has been once eligible to participate at an edition of the IOR Half Ton Cup, and
• if no alterations have been made to the hull of the boat (except keel & rudder).
Every production boat derived from the hull of a prototype one-off half tonner will also be considered as a half tonner.
